My Weekend in a Word: Quiet!

Hi there!  After spending a couple of days travelling for work, it was really nice to come home on Friday night to my family.  But my husband had to work all weekend, so although I would have liked to spend more time with him, it was kinda perfect to have a weekend to potter around the house, and not do anything too strenuous.  Here is a quick look at what I got up to.

Friday ...

I flew home from Sydney on Friday night, so I had a quick salad at the airport before my flight.

I flew with Qantas, which means they also provide meals!  I had some spaghetti bolognese and a Lindt ball en route.  But the best part was getting home, kissing my boys and falling into bed.

Saturday ....

I got to sleep in a little, and hit up the gym for my first run since last weekend.  I was really looking forward to it!  And I had some new running shoes to try - I was happy!  I did a comfortable 7km on the treadmill.

When I got back from the gym, Angus had to check out my new kicks too.

Then he and I headed out for a stroll around the neighbourhood.  It was a beautiful morning in Melbourne.  When I got back, I jumped in the shower, then headed out to a local cafe for brunch - a ham, tomato and cheese flat wrap and coffee.

After running a few errands, I headed home for a domestic afternoon of washing and other chores.  For an afternoon snack I made a strawberry smoothie - a punnet of strawberries, with a little coconut milk, some chia and ice.  Delish!

When Gareth got home, I made pizza - salami and pineapple for me, mushroom and chicken for husband.  Not my best batch, but still yummy!

We watched Let's Be Cops.  It lived up to it's average reputation, but gave us a few laughs, which went well with wine and ice cream :)

Sunday ...

Sunday I let myself be lazy again and sleep in, and then Angus I went for a walk.  He decided to roll in the dirt next to a dead fish - charming.  Lucky I managed to avoid him actually rolling on the dead fish.

When I got home, I had some eggs on an English muffin - simple, but perfect.

After cleaning the shower, then cleaning me, I headed out again to get some supplies for an afternoon pre-Easter project.  More to come later!

I had some late sushi and juice for lunch ...

And then, I played with blogs until my man came home.  So now I'm off to spend time with him :)

What do you like to do when you have a day to yourself?
